Manifold is a collaborative, open-source platform for online publishing that supports media-rich content and annotation. Though its primary emphasis is on supporting scholarly publishing, the platform can be self-hosted and used for the production of student texts or open educational resources.

Manifold is manifold. It is the digital publishing platform of the University of Minnesota Press (who, along with Portland-based Cast Iron Coding and the CUNY Grad Centre, are developing it). It is also a system anyone can download and put to use locally. It has applications in monograph publishing, in OERs, and in critial/classroom editions of text (as at CUNY), owing to its robust annotation and commenting features. Manifold can ingest source texts from a variety of sources, including Word docs, EPUBs, HTML, and markdown.
